A 17-year-old Lebanese citizen accidentally crossed into Israel Friday afternoon. Large military forces were alerted to the scene, near the community of Margalit, after a suspicious-looking figure was spotted carrying a shovel. An IDF reservist force apprehended the infiltrator who said he was Lebanese and had accidentally crossed the Blue Line international border in search of metal. He was transferred back to Lebanon by UNIFIL.
